    Default Chromecast with Nexus 7

    I have purchased a Chromecast and was wondering if I could use it with my Nexus 7 (as a portable hotspot) to watch films from netflix.
    I also have a chromebook and have tried to setup the chromecast through using my phone as a portable hotspot to get the internet.
    I dont seem to have any joy with this , can someone tell me if its possible?!

    Default Re: Chromecast with Nexus 7

    Welcome to Android Central! Chromecast works over your home wi-fi network, not over your phone's mobile data hotspot. Do you have wi-fi at home? See this setup guide: https://support.google.com/chromecas.../2998456?hl=en
